Tonight, we look back at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Reliability issues claim all four Andretti Autosport cars, while the Chevrolet teams make a comeback and Dale Coyne Racing’s Sebastian Bourdais quietly establishes himself as the dominating leader in the championship points standing. We also look forward to the Month of May and marvel at what may be the most impactful one-off driver deal in the history of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race.

    I had to make that my Facebook cover photo, at least in the short term.
    Thanks Mike Whitesell for the expedient Photoshopping!

    That said, there is so much more to the Alonso to Indy story that we DIDN’T touch on during the podcast:
    – Speculation on how well Alonso will get up to speed in the DW-12 and the unique animal that is Indianapolis.
    – Comparing Alonso’s immense talent and depth of experience to the prospective grid at Indy, especially “the old guard” like Helio, TK, Power etc.
    – How well will Alonso adapt to the very different driver/fan relationship in VICS compared to F1?

    The Barber race is my favorite, as we’ve said before. As much as I’d like to be there and maybe get to rub noses with motorsports royalty, it’s just not in the cards.
    Maybe if I win the VIP giveaway they’re doing on Facebook.
